A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Forget Superman, I'm not even Kent!

I think I have the lowest threshold of pain that a human can have. What makes it even worse is I'm surrounded by men who are capable of surviving situations that most don't even believe are real when they see it recreated in a movie. Sigh. I pull a muscle in my neck and I can't sleep for a week even with prescription narcotics; I sink to new levels of pathetic with each passing year.
